Book Description

HIV-AIDS and Social Work Practice in the Caribbean demonstrates how social workers, working alongside heath care professionals can contribute to the multi-disciplinary intervention in the fight against HIV-AIDS in the Caribbean using the lived experiences of person affected by HIV-AIDS.

Using Trinidad and Tobago as the model for the Caribbean, this volume provides relevant, up-to-date information on theory and practice innovation in addressing the psychological needs of persons affected by HIV-AIDS; and how social work can be utilised as a tool of empowerment for dealing with HIV-AIDS.

The result of three years’ research by scholars of social work, psychology and economics, HIV-AIDS and Social Work Practice in the Caribbean breaks the silence in addressing the psychological implications of HIV-AIDS at the individual, family, community and societal levels and presents a framework and model for promoting social change.
